,  6:10am
Lincoln Memorial, Washington, D.C.
Christian and Jewish leaders who wholeheartedly love God will gather for the sole purpose of repenting and remembering the God of our fathers. 
 Pro-family leaders across denominational boundaries have joined together for this effort including: Dr. James Dobson, American Family Association President, Tim Wildmon, Concerned Women for America President, Wendy Wright, Liberty Counsel Chairman, Mat Staver, NRB President, Dr. Frank Wright, Three Star General Jerry Boykin, Dutch Sheets, David Barton, and many members of Congress who are willing to stand in the gap for our nation.

“This event is not to impress the media or the Washington ‘elite.’ May Day is focused on God—to cry out and repent of our nation’s sins that have brought us to this point of distress….”

“Passing Bills without Voting On Them”  (Slaughter Plan)
by Dan Perrin    March 11th

But now that the Senate Parliamentarian has ruled the obvious, that you can not vote on a reconciliation measure if the bill you are attempting to reconcile has not been signed into law – the Slaughter plan looks both desperate and comical.
It is also (obviously) unconstitutional and will, if carried out, create a public outcry that will make burning witches at the stake look rational.

Morning Bell: Obamacare at Any Cost
The Heritage Foundation              03/12/2010
With no votes piling up, and  “yes” votes materializing, the Democratic plans to shove Obamacare down the throats of the American people are becoming more and more desperate. This Monday, the House Budget Committee will begin markup on the new reconciliation bill even though actual legislative text does not exist for it yet. The Democrats plan to pass a shell of a bill through the appropriate committees so that the Rules Committee can then substitute the bill that is being drafted completely behind closed doors by the White House and Senate and Democrat leaders.

Politico reports that despite the Parliamentarian’s initial verbal ruling, they will press on with their Slaughter Rule plan to pass the Senate bill without voting on it. NRO’s Yuval Levin quips: “Democratic leaders should be asking themselves just how they have gotten to the point that their strategy is to amend a law that doesn’t exist yet by passing a bill without voting on it.”

But President Obama’s progressive base is way past rational thought when it comes to health care. They want it passed at any cost. And as George Will pointed out yesterday, the very essence of progressivism sublimates the democratic process to the rule of experts in Washington. No one can say if this bill will finally pass, but if it does, it is abundantly clear that our republican form of government will be permanently damaged by it.

It’s Healthcare or the Highway
Tony Beam  Tuesday, March 09, 2010
Never have so many done so much to accomplish something that so few want. That about sums up the Obama Administration obsession to ram the so-called healthcare reform package through a reluctant Congress.  Republicans are united in their opposition and the President’s own party has to be bought off, roughed up, or talked down to in order to bring them in line.  The limits of reconciliation in the Senate is forcing the Obama Administration to go for broke in the House.  If somehow, Nancy Pelosi and Rahm Emanuel can get enough democrat representatives to agree to fall on their swords and vote for passage of the Senate bill, reconciliation will be a moot point. All that has to happen is for the House to pass the Senate bill without amendments.  It would then go straight to the President’s desk where he would sign into law the largest, most bitterly partisan bill in history.a bill that has been soundly rejected by majority after majority in poll after poll.

What happened to Obama’s middle path on health reform?
By Michael Gerson                March 10, 2010
Whatever the legislative fate of health reform — now in the hands of a few besieged House Democrats — the reformers have failed in their argument. Their proposal has divided Democrats while uniting Republicans, returned American politics to well-worn ideological ruts, employed legislative tactics that smack of corruption, squandered the president’s public standing, lowered public regard for Congress to French revolutionary levels, sucked the oxygen from other agenda items, reengaged the abortion battle, produced freaks and prodigies of nature such as a Republican senator from Massachusetts, raised questions about the continued governability of America and caused the White House chief of staff to distance himself from the president’s ambitions.

Will Patient Privacy Be Sold for Stimulus Money?
The key to enforcing healthcare reform was already passed in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), also known as the Stimulus Bill. This contains $17 billion to encourage physicians and hospitals to adopt electronic health records.

Health-care reform’s ‘back-door’ tax
By Jia Lynn Yang          March 11, 2010
The big talk on Capitol Hill may be about health-care reform, but as part of this massive undertaking, the Democrats are quietly reshaping the tax system too. Tucked inside President Obama’s latest health-care proposal is a major change to the Medicare tax.

 Obama openly Rules against the Will of the Governed and now their Lives
 By Sher Zieve  Thursday, March 11, 2010
As the new US Marxist-Democrat Party today continues to hold secret meetings to determine how to best ram and shove ObamaCare down the throats of the American people, while also conspiring as to how best to oppress them and turn the USA—once and for all—into a totalitarian country, I’m reminded of the now growing-fainter-by-the-moment famous words of our forefathers; words that spoke of and to liberty and freedom for them and their posterity….
 
The ObamaCare “healthcare” bill—which has little to nothing to do with health—will begin the establishment of his and the Marxist-Democrats’ permanent dictatorship in the United States of America.  At least 100 (that’s one-hundred, folks) new agencies are included in the ObamaCare monstrosity.  These are agencies that Obama, his Marxist and his Maoist co-conspirators have included for the establishment of [their] total control over the American people.  This is, of course, a deliberately executed atrocity against any and all portions of the US Constitution which—via increasing abuse and disuse by our Congressional and Executive Branch rulers—have been rendered null and void by the ruling power elite.  And now—just when we thought it almost impossible—something even graver and far darker has emerged from the Obama administration.

Why Democrats Don’t Care about $9.7 Trillion Debt
by Dennis Prager on March 9, 2010
And most Americans do not understand the difference between liberal and
left. They do not realize, for example, that there is no major difference
between the American Democratic Party and the leftist social democratic
parties of Western Europe. They do not know that from Karl Marx to Obama,
the left (as opposed to liberals) has never created wealth because it has
never been interested in creating wealth; it is interested in redistributing
wealth.
Therefore, unprecedented and unsustainable debt, a debt that will negatively
affect most Americans’ quality of life, renders the dollar increasingly
undesirable, and undermines America’s prestige and power in the world -
these developments do not particularly disturb the left. They may trouble
the president, the Democratic Party, and others on the left on some
political level, but that pales in comparison to what the left really wants:
a huge government overseeing a giant welfare state and a country with far
fewer rich Americans.
Achieving those goals is far more important than preventing a decline in the
American quality of life. The further left one goes, the more contempt one
has for the present quality of American life in any event. The left
regularly mocks many of the symbols of that life – from the three-bedroom
suburban house surrounded by a white picket fence to owning an SUV (or
almost any car) because Americans should be traveling on public buses,
trains and bicycles.

GEERT WILDERS/ ISLAM
Geert Wilders Speech, House of Lords, London, Friday the 5th of March 2010

It is our obligation to defend freedom of speech. As George Orwell said: “If
liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they
do not want to hear”.
Ladies and gentlemen, I believe in another policy, it is time for change. We
must make haste. We can’t wait any longer. Time is running out. If I may
quote one of my favourite American presidents: Ronald Reagan once said: “We
need to act today, to preserve tomorrow”. That is why I propose the
following measures, I only mention a few, in order to preserve our freedom:
First, we will have to defend freedom of speech. It is the most important of
our liberties. In Europe and certainly in the Netherlands, we need something
like the American First Amendment.
Second, we will have to end and get rid of cultural relativism. To the
cultural relativists, the shariah socialists, I proudly say: Our Western
culture is far superior to the Islamic culture. Don’t be affraid to say it.
You are not a racist when you say that our own culture is better.
Third, we will have to stop mass immigration from Islamic countries. Because
more Islam means less freedom.
Fourth, we will have to expel criminal immigrants and, following
denaturalisation, we will have to expel criminals with a dual nationality
.
And there are many of them in my country.
Fifth, we will have to forbid the construction of new mosques. There is
enough Islam in Europe. Especially since Christians in Turkey, Egypt, Iraq,
Iran, Pakistan and Indonesia are mistreated, there should be a mosque
building-stop in the West.
And last but not least, we will have to get rid of all those so-called
leaders. I said it before: Fewer Chamberlains, more Churchills. Let’s elect
real leaders….

Ladies and gentlemen, we will never apologize for being free. We will and
should never give in. And, indeed, as one of your former leaders said: We
will never surrender.
Freedom must prevail, and freedom will prevail.
